Prayer Flag Project: Day 16 Inspiration

Today's prayer is for Inspiration.  I hope that I continue to be inspired to work on this project, and that others are inspired to join in.  I pray that this project inspires people to hope, to dream, and to pray for a better world.  And I also pray that inspiration leads to action, and action leads to change.

This flag is made from a folded vintage handkerchief.  I wonder if its original maker would mind... it is edged with beautiful tatting, and has a lovely white embroidered flower in the upper left corner.  The shell photograph was printed on organza and is quilted through the folded handkerchief and a layer of wool batting.  The tag reads, "She adores every fibre", and is clipped from a discarded vintage novel.  The piece was photographed on silk velvet... another "fibre" I love...

Ooooh, this is so pretty! I don't think I would have the heart to leave this outside for long. It reminds me of my grandma-in-law who made beautiful tatted edges on things.

Thanks for posting on the SAQA group about this. I have been doing a similar thing and love that you are as well!

I love these, Vivika! Each one is more beautiful than the next. You obviously have a wonderful stash of vintage items and you're using them extremely well. (It would take me about an hour just to decide which of these fantstic things I'd want to use.)

I'm so impressed with both the beauty and the narrative aspect of these pieces. They've brightened my day.
